A Few Facts About Canning.

circa 1895.

Oblong booklet (8.9 x 16.2 cm.), 8 pages. Illustrated with photographs and engravings. Promotes the Mudge Patent Canner, a household canning processor that “does away with the stewing kettle” and is “the cheapest, most efficacious and economical system of putting up high-standard goods that has ever been invented.” The Boston Cooking School Magazine reviewed the device saying, “a great point in its favor is that, by the use of the canner, fruit or vegetables are not subjected to long cooking, and thus flavor, color and form are preserved. Another consideration is that, by this process, no dishes are required, as the fruit to be ‘put up’ is put at once into the jars…” Stapled in green wrappers. Fine. Unrecorded.
